We Honor our Colleagues on International Women’s Day

Today is International Women’s Day, and we want to recognize the women who make the IAF strong, with a special focus on a long-standing advocate for our work.  This organization is graced with many talented women, both on the Board — Sheila Colclasure, Stephanie Higgins, Michelle Richardson, Laura Sherren, JoAnn Stonier, Della Shea and Pam Snively; and our staff — Stephanie, Lynn, Candy, Nancy, and Barb.  One woman deserves a special shoutout.  Jennifer Glasgow was a member of the privacy profession before there was such a thing as the privacy profession.   We began working with each other in the early 1990’s.  When we created the first business process oriented thinktank, she stepped forward first – as the CPO of Acxiom, she was a founder of CIPL.  She was one of the three individuals that said it was time for the global accountability dialog to be incorporated as the IAF, and signed the incorporation papers as treasurer.  Today Jennifer we salute you as a pioneer in the field of privacy and as a founder of the IAF.
